Femtoo: 4 years old and over 10,000 users strong

Although the Femtoo blog hasn't seen much action for a while, itself is seen a steady increase in users over it's 4 year lifespan. Femtoo now has over 10,000 registered users, tracking over 25,000 web pages 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

Several server upgrades have taken place over the years with hundreds of code changes (new features, bug fixes and performance optimizations).

Back in 2010 I presented Femtoo at Seedcamp in Barcelona, at which time Femtoo had astounding 700 users! Of course that figure has jumped to over 10,000 in a few years.

Femtoo is definitely alive and will continue to track web pages and notify user for many years to come (and it looks like another infrastructure upgrade will be required due to the continual increase in users).

And for those that don't know, Femtoo is an online web application that allows you to track changes to specific parts of web pages every 30 minutes and get notified by email as soon as a change is detected. Femtoo is used by loads of people for a wide range of reasons:

  • checking for product price changes
  • checking for special offers and discounts
  • checking for new job announcements
  • checking for news and publication updates to government or state websites
  • checking the local weather for extreme temperatures or warnings
  • checking for stock prices or other published financial information
Femtoo is *FREE* to sign up and *FREE* to use. Even the premium features can be accessed for as little as €1.20 per month. Give it a go and sign-up today!
